  1. Hi Simon, thanks for the advice. I must say, the lenses, except from the Ynvar seem to be in good state, especially the Xenar and the Angeniuex. Im trying to see if I can fix the viewfinder before deciding if returning the camera, but I'm stuck at the point one: - Undo the four screws in the finder channel top cover. Im not sure where those screws are. 😬 Do I have to remove the viewfinder first? ho do I do that? thanks, francesco ps: one pic of the camera plus two pictures of this weird motored handle grip? I couldnt find a single picture of it on the inte
  2. Bolex Reflex h16 mm, serial number 148669, with original leather case5 lenses:1- SWITAR 1: 1.4/25, no. 6368612- SWITAR 1: 1.8/16, no. 4130323- YVAR 1: 3.3/100, no. 290150 4- ANGENIEUX 1: 1.3/15, no. 11888075- SCHNEIDER-XENAR 1:4.5/150, no. 3789650 The Yvar lens is the one with the stuck aperture ring. I paid for the whole lot 505 euros. There s also the handle grip included. thanks!
  3. Thanks a lot for your answer Simon. I will try to do it after Tuesday as the camera came with 5 lenses but I just noticed one has the aperture ring blocked - so I might return everything and I'm waiting for the seller response - and don't want to put my hands on it before I hear from him. Am I right to consider this finder adjustment resetting not a big deal? Or that could be an underlying issue? I am trying to understand how problematic it might be and also if I should ask for a discount or simply return the camera. Thanks a lot, i really appreciate the help
  4. Hi, I just got a bolex h16 from the web which I can return if the item was different from how it was described. When I look through the viewfinder, I see the rectangle of the viewfinder, and inside it, as If it was offset, the image, like in the quick sketch I've attached. Is this normal? If not, is it easy to fix? Should I just return the camera? I've managed to get some nice lens with it and would like to keep it but if this is an issue I'll have no option that to return it. Thanks a lot
  5. Thanks, now I got both sides of the subject 🙂 Without me opening another thread, can I ask if there s a chart for super 8 projector throw distances? Can't seem to find one. I'm thinking about very small projections (so I think long lens, will 33mm be enough and is there any longer lens for super 8?) Thanks a lot!
  6. Thanks for your answer, and sorry for the late reply, I didn't notice I got a response. I am assuming that the smaller the projection is and also the bigger the film size format is, the sharper the corners? am I right in this?
  7. Hi, I don't know much about film projectors. When I see videos on youtube I often notice the super 8 projectors have very soft edges and corners. Is there a projector that has instead sharp edges? Thanks
  8. I'm thinking...would I complicate my life too much by running a second eumig r2000 and loop the film while running on both projectors?
  9. Hi, I'm trying to find the developing times for colour reversal Wittner 200D but I can't. Do you guys know? Thanks
  10. Ok , thanks! I have a friend that could be interested in helping me out with replacing the bulb with an LED one. One last question, once the exhibition is done, do I break the loop where the splice has been done, trying to take the tape away? or do I have to make a new cut?
  11. Thanks a lot. Probably I will have a timer on the plug so that switches off every 15 minutes for 5 minutes and then starts again. Do you think it would help if I open up the side of the projector (where I can change the bulb) and place a small fan facing it? Also, I am reading online that with the CIR guillotine the splice will be less noticeable when projected. would you recommend it or a press tape splice would be stronger? Thanks!!
  12. thanks so much. so, I think i got it. Something like this (sorry about the crappiness of the drawing - and ignore the grey horizontal line on the back). [img]https://imgur.com/a/iVHfo[/img]
  13. Great. sorry I literally don't have any knowledge in film projection. So, what I would have to do is to just join the ends right? Is it possible also to loop for a longer duration?
